Hi 

Sorry for the blurred left side of the picture, can't reveal clients.
What do you guys think? This time i actually have the time to do adjustments and re-render.

This is not a building that ever is going to be built, it is just a concept to sell to a group of companies and institutions that could benefit from collocating in a cluster.

Too. Many. People.

I really understand why you add people, even if I'm not a fan of people doing it. 
However, less is more [smile]

The more you add, the more difficult it is to get people to look as if they belong in the image. There are too many people just standing around, scattered around the image.

The guy holding the tablet/paper for example - wouldn't it have been better to put him at the reception desk talking to the guy at the computer?  He could have been asking the guy to check something for him.

Why is there a guy looking at the sign you have blurred out? Would you really expect someone to be standing and staring at it? Wouldn't he be more likely to be sitting on the seat?

You've got people in their shirt sleeves, a group of people in outdoor clothing with coats (would you expect to see a teenage girl with her parents in this space) and a woman apparently aimlessly walking across the middle of a presentation stair.

You have a guy walking in from outdoors in a coat, and a guy walking out in a shirt. You've got a guy in a suit apparently walking towards the back wall...

Even once you balance the people with the overall image (this is not bad here) and get the shadows right, you've absolutely got to make the people look like they really belong in the image and that you can immediately understand what they are doing.

What you tend to do is throw in lots of random people without a lot of consistency in the environment, or between them. Some really do look good, others however...

You are good at this. You evidently have skill, and you take the time to learn, and keep learning. I really respect you for that, and a lot of our customers would really love to be able to do what you do. 

I always like looking at your images - even when I think there are drawbacks. I'm harsh in my criticism of your work. Not because you aren't good - but because you are [smile]

Your skill level and dedication are great, it's perhaps some of the decision-making that is not quite so good.

I'm going to tell you what I tell my office juniors, "You need to spend more time thinking, and less time drawing!" [tongue]

Thanks for your honest big stick! i`ll admit that populating the scenes seldomly is done with very much care, I promise I`ll  remember next time. That being said I think the 3d-people work okay here, they are better from a distance than up close.

here is a different shot from the same building. And yes, these are the same people that are in the foyer, I still unfortunately have a limited 3d people selection.
